You couldn’t have asked for better weather for today’s annual rivalry game that dates back to 1936 between Fort Hill and Allegany.
Things started off great for Fort Hill as they kicked off and the ball was fumbled at the 10 yard line and the Sentinels recovered. Two plays later, they punched it in for 6 on a two-yard run by Ryan Briner. The extra point by Cullin Brown made it 7-0. But Allegany responded with a six-minute drive resulting in two-yard touchdown by Christian to make the score even at 7, ending the first quarter.
The second quarter started off with a 65-yard touchdown run by Garret Clay, taking the score to 14-7, Fort Hill. The Sentinels struck again with another 60-yard run by Dillion Clay and finished by his brother Garret Clay on a five-yard touchdown run, increasing the Fort Hill lead to 21-7. Allegany went on a mission and marched down the field getting all the way to the 20-yard line, but an intended pass was picked off. Score at the half: Fort Hill 21-Allegany 7.
The third quarter started out with another amazing run by Garret Clay, covering 75 yards for another Fort Hill, taking the score to 29-7. But as soon as one brother does something the other has to top him: Dillion Clay followed with a rumbling touchdown for 35 yards, making the score to 36-7. Another touchdown by Lance Fullwood gave Fort Hill a 43-7 lead at the end of the third quarter.
The fourth quarter was all Fort Hill once again, with another score for Garrett Clay, who was eventually named MVP of the game, as the Sentinels went on to win 50-7 over Allegany.
